A Pew poll released yesterday revealed that Americans approve raising taxes on the rich by a two-to-one margin. a full 68% supported a phased-in tax increase for the richest 2%. The poll also reveals the more they knew about Obama's plan the more they supported the tax increase. The highly respected Americans for Tax fairness is asserting that the McClatchy poll is likely the result of a badly-worded poll. This would make since because the McClathcy poll contradicts other recent polls. I mean really, tax cuts for the rich most supported by the poorest of the poor? Not likely.
